It’s safe to say we are all familiar with the saying ‘comparison is the thief of joy’ – yet we still do it?
When you set a goal of something you’d like to achieve, and then begin to look to others and see how far along they seem, it’s easy to compare where they are to where you are, and the ‘what if’ thoughts start and lines begin to blur.
Your timeline and expectations become pressurised and your focus goes from what you’re doing and where you are going, to what others are doing and where they are going.
It veers you off course and erodes your confidence and focus.
You can’t possibly put your unconditional focus, passion and energy into what you are doing if you’re been side-tracked by others. Doing this actually slows down the manifestation process and over time your confidence and self-belief takes a hit as things don’t seem to be happening as you would of liked or imagined. This is a peak point where people give up on their goals and dreams – when it’s not happening for them like it did for others. But you can’t compare your chapter 1 to someone else’s chapter 20.
You can’t possibly know exactly what it’s taken for them to get to where they are. It may look like sunshine and rainbows on their highlight reels, but they will no doubt have been through numerous challenges and nearly given up along the way.
When you choose to be inspired by others rather than comparing, you begin attracting the right people and places into your life. It shifts your energy and vibration from a place of lack and feeling low, to high vibe and hope. When you keep your focus on what you’re doing, and doing it YOUR way, synchronicities start happening, things start lining up and it feels like you are in flow. This gives you more confidence than ever that you are on the right path. Here are 6 steps to help you refocus and shake off comparison: Become super self aware and vigilant of where your focus and attention is going.
Unfollow, mute, take some time away from those things that draw you into the comparison spin. Keep bringing your energy back to what’s important – you and your path!
Get clear on your goals.
Re-visit your goals and intentions, get clear on what it is and why you are excited about achieving it.
Put your goal(s) into your timeline.
When do you want to achieve them by and why? Forget the pace that others go, you do you.
Set micro-goals and begin taking action.
There’s no time like the present to get the ball rolling, you’ll feel fantastic for doing so.
Whether it’s a trusty friend, a group of like minded people, a coach or mentor. When you’ve got someone who’s got your back to bounce off, share, pick you up when you fall down and someone to celebrate the highs with, people’s rate of success is much greater than someone who has no accountability.
Trust and enjoy the process.
Just deciding to let go and let in all that is meant for you is so powerful. Don’t take yourself too seriously and make it your mission to have fun along the way, this in itself raises your vibration and makes you more of a magnet for manifestation.
